6) Conclusion 


I attached all calculations results 


The attached spreadsheet has some results from prior classes .  The calculation sheet has some sample calculations prepared for both falling head and constant head tests. You will need to edit that sheet, add your group and soil name, add your data, make the Q vs (Adh/dl) plot, calculate K for each experiment, and calculate the average for each test and for each soil.

Don’t worry about calculating the K at a different temperature. However, I would like you to look up the density and viscosity of water to use with your hydraulic conductivity measurements to calculate the intrinsic permeability of each soil.
